Leary Turns Coach For “Draft Day”

Denis Leary has joined the cast of Ivan Reitman’s football feature “Draft Day” at OddLot Entertainment and Lionsgate.

Leary will play Vince Penn, the new head coach of the Cleveland Browns, who finds himself at odds with the team’s general manager (Kevin Costner).

It adds extra pressure as the GM attempts to make the right picks to lift the franchise through the NFL draft. Jennifer Garner also stars.

Part of the film will be shot at the April 25th draft to be held at Radio City Music Hall. Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph penned the script.
